Chores Don’t Kill

Right before school started, I introduced Tad to the concept of actually doing a chore so he could earn something fun.  In this case, he wanted to watch something non-music related (I was letting Thumper watch one of his favorite orchestra concerts off YouTube, and Tad was tired of it).

So I plugged in the vacuum cleaner and said, “Here!  Vacuum the kitchen floor!”

And he did.

Then I handed him a container of Clorox wipes, and he got down to the floor to put a little elbow grease in.

And guess what?  HE SURVIVED.

And then he watched some “Batman: The Animated Series,” which made him happy.

Guess what his new weekly chore is now?
